Event Description

Reviewing Mary Jo Salter’s A Phone Call to the Future: New & Selected Poems for The New York Times Book Review, James Longenbach wrote, “Only a few poets transcend the history of taste to participate in the history of art—and only in a handful of poems. Salter has been struck by lightning more than once.” Salter’s most recent collection, The Surveyors (2017), is her eight. She is also the author of a children's book, The Moon Comes Home, a coeditor of The Norton Anthology of Poetry, and a lyricist whose song cycle “Rooms of Light” premiered at Lincoln Center in 2007. She teaches at Johns Hopkins University and lives in Baltimore. The event will be followed by refreshments.
